5 winter warmer ideas
Embrace cold dark evenings with these fun and warming activities
1. Dance to carnival beats
Channel the sunshine, sparkle and beats of the world famous Rio Carnival, which takes place from 9-14 February. Celebrate by putting on your dancing shoes or trying samba drumming - you’ll be feeling the heat in no time. There are lots of fun videos on YouTube you could follow!
2. Keep dry with arty umbrellas
Decorate umbrellas and put them to the test in the rain. You could turn a white umbrella into a stripy zebra, or a green one into a googly eyed frog – the (rainy) sky’s the limit.
3. Stay warm with a campfire
Sometimes the oldies are the best! Hold a traditional campfire complete with toasting marshmallows, singing songs and playing games while keeping warm and cosy around the fire.
